Re: Ferdinand Beisiegel b. 1848 Wuerttemberg, Germany
Thanks for your interest.
Since my posting I have traced the Beisiegel that went to USA and living relatives there.
I have also found Ferdinand Beisiegel emigrated from Germany 1868 - Nov. His occupation was - Ropemaker.
His parents are shown as- f.Johann Adam Leonnard Beisiegel
m. Maria Rosina Barbara - born Junker.
His naturalisation papers 1896 agrees.
His marriage cert. 1872 shows f.Theodore Beisiegel-Ropemaker.
His Godparents were-
Theodor Friedrich - waiter in Eldhofen
Ferdinand Wilhelm Kolhauer - master smith in Kunzelsau
Friedrich Wendel - master ropemaker in Kunzelsau
Charlotte Benner - not married of Kunzelsau
I give the above in case any of these names crop up in your searches.
Any further information on him or his family would be gratefully received. Not being German speaking, I have found further research very difficult.
